The Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Conference on Public Policy is now soliciting papers for a conference on “On the Border of International Cooperation”. The conference will be held at New York University on April 12-13, 2019. The papers and comments are slated for publication in the January 2020 issue of the Journal of Monetary Economics.
The post-WWII era exhibited the growing global integration of goods, financial, and labor markets. This era appears to be over: Brexit, dramatic reversals of trade and immigration policy in the United States, possible secession of Catalonia, the possibility of countries exiting the Euro, etc. We invite proposals that explore both the economic implications of the uncoupling of international cooperation and the incentives to sustain international cooperation. In particular, we are looking for contributions of both theoretical and empirical research that explores:
The effects of trade wars, policy induced uncertainty, on global commerce and national welfare.
The effects of a reduced international financial coordination (i.e. monetary policy, regulation, exchange rate policy, etc.)
Changes in tax policy with an eye towards the taxation of international activities.
The political economy of entering and exiting international agreements.
Historical analysis of past episodes of economic disintegration.
Proposals should be submitted electronically as a pdf attached to an email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Monday, October 29, 2018.
